It’ll do it, but it’ll struggle more than a router with a larger motor, which in turn will shorten it’s service life. The 690 is better suited as a hand router or table router for smaller bits IMO…..can’t help but think you’d be better served with a 13-15 amp router if you’ll be doing very many raised panels.
